Maybe I hold a grudge too long but I'm still a bit upset over the hijacking of the English Movie Server.

If you just get ids from the IMDB, you can also use them to form URLs for RottenTomatoes.

How do the IMDB and RottenTomatoes IDs relate? I was just looking at that and couldn't work it out. I could possibly do something neat in SQL to generate the RottenTomatoes URLs from the IMDB ones.

Here's an example:
Using the IMDB ID number, "0079501", you may access the Rotten Tomatoes Mad Max page using the following URL:
